a last minute booking for a weekend break in London was not disappointing.The reception ,from doorman to desk was very personable.unfortunately there was decoration work going on so only one lift was working,which created somewhat of a back log of guests queuing for a lift to their rooms.
The free mini bar of snacks and soft drinks was greatly appreciated as was the IPod docking station.The staff really made the trip, except for the staff in the bar,which made us feel as if they were doing us a favour,rather than the fact we were paying guests.Having stayed in many London hotels we appreciate that drinks will be expensive,but the charge of 12.5% on top of the menu price was quite a shock.Duncan the concierge was brilliant and recommended the local pub in the Shepherds Market, which was great,thankyou.
Overall a very enjoyable stay.
